First week of my final semester at SVA. Where is my thesis now?
The last semester of thesis work has clarified my direction quite a bit. It’s come a long way from the vague “fighting political apathy” to a statement that’s much more concrete. I am focusing on:
1. How to use data visualizations and social networks to show people the brokenness of our campaign finance system.
2. Drawing attention to proposals and bills that address campaign finance reform.
Where to go from here? It looks like I will take my interaction design and code skills, and dive into the world of computer assisted reported. I’ve already begun to dig around in campaign finance data, and learning about the intricacies of data wrangling. I’ve started to build prototypes of interactive visualizations, which I should really start putting online soon.
Four more months. Here we go.
